Question Front Suspension popping noise...

Just had my JC for 3 weeks with 20,000 miles. Our first snowfall in Chicago area with 12 inches of snow last fri and driving over patches of snow and ice I'm hearing suspension popping noises. Shouldn't the suspension be stiff enough to have a firm suspension going over bumps?

Wanted to know if there's something wrong with JC's suspension. If anyone has the same problem, please let me know. Do I have to bring it in to the shop to have them look at it?

Re: Front Suspension popping noise...

Are you sure there wasn't any snow / slush up in your springs or caked into your wheel well. Any of those can cause some weird noises.

Re: Front Suspension popping noise...

Mine does that as well... I live just south of Chicago. My 2003 Tahoe suspension popped as well. Sometimes when I am turning into my driveway which is on an incline it does it as well if I am carrying speed. I guess it must be our wonderful roads in Illinois as well as right now the chunks of snow on the roads.

I have heard this as well. Seems louder the colder it is. Dealer checked it over the summer and found no problems. My gut says it's bushing related.

Re: Front Suspension popping noise...

Common sense would seem to tell you that popping noise = friction, friction = wear and tear, wear and tear = early repair bill. I believe that I would insist that the dealer tell me something or show me in the manual where the popping noise is an added feature!

Re: Front Suspension popping noise...

Waiting for the CALL??? When to pick up. The front ends sounds like its really loose, over uneven pavement-dirt road wash board effect. When i installed the new rims 20" i thought the sound was caused by having the low profile tires. Then i put on the original for winter ,the sound was there. You read reviews that it is soild no rattles???
I bought the new 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara and there is not one rattle over any bump on the roads!!!!! For $30000 and next to the $50000 JC the JC should not rattle either.

Re: Front Suspension popping noise...

Yeah, I washed my JC the other day hoping it was just chunks of snow/ice causing it to "pop" but it's still the same. Popping noises even going like 2-5 mph over slushy patches of snow. Kirby, any news about the fix and what was causing it?
